Nokia Lumia 620, the value-for-money smartphone from the Finnish company is set to hit German shelves on Feb. 18.
The Lumia 620 and the HTC 8S are currently the cheapest Windows Phone 8 handsets available in the market. The smartphone was released in the UK and Russia in January and Nokia had disclosed that the Lumia 920 would make its way to other European countries in the next few weeks.
Per reports, it appears that Germany is the next country on Nokia's list. The folks at Phoneseven.de spotted the Lumia 620 listed on a German e-retailer's site, with a release date of Feb. 18, after being tipped off by an anonymous source.
According to the site, the Lumia 620 will be available in four colors: white, black, green, and yellow. While the site is aware of the intended pricing it chose not to reveal it, but let on that it would be more expensive than China and cheaper than in Russia.
"The device should available in black, yellow, green and white appear, all have the same price. The price is known to me, however, should not be disclosed. Suffice it to say: the mobile phone is more expensive than in China (~ 230 Euro) and cheaper than in Russia (about 300 euros)," reported Phoneseven.de (translated).
The Lumia 620 sports a 3.8-inch LCD display with 800 x 480 pixels resolution, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage (expandable), 5-megapixel primary camera, and a 1300mAh battery.
With the handset slated to be priced between Euro 230 to Euro 300, the Lumia 620 looks set to give competition to the HTC 8 S, which costs Euro 250.
The Lumia 620 has received a good response in the UK, and Nokia would be hoping that Germany follows suit.
